One great gift for a professor regardless of gender is a WanderSafe personal safety device. WanderSafe is a discreet, non-violent internet of things device that pairs with a smartphone and has built-in assault deterrent functionality. 

The device weighs just 70 grams and has a high lumen on click flashlight, a second click strobe light, a twist to activate 140-decibel personal screamer, and a silent SOS button (the WanderSafe Activate) that when paired with the intelligent app, sends an emergency SMS to the three pre-designated contacts. 

Professors are vulnerable as they commute on and off campus. Personal safety is everyone's concern.
